Students will practice looking at a topic from multiple points of view, and will discuss whose voices are amplified and whose voices are silenced. This lesson is part of a media unit curated at our Digital Citizenship website called "Who Am I Online?".
Students explore call and response songs through singing.
This resource was created by Staci Simonsen, in collaboration with Lynn Bowder, as part of ESU2's Mastering the Arts project. This project is a four year initiative focused on integrating arts into the core curriculum through teacher education and experiential learning.
Students explore healthy posture through storytelling and observation.
Within this series of lessons, students will explore these essential questions:
What basic human necessities are needed to thrive in society?
How do we measure wealth?
How to move from oppression to resiliency?
How to move from oppression to social change?
Students will examine the extent to which people pass judgment, discriminate and violate human rights in communities of color and to what extent these same communities remain resilient. Students will learn and apply their knowledge of non-violent communication to increase self awareness, school and career readiness skills in the social-emotional domain, and develop an understanding about their bio-reactions. Students will research and analyze strengths and challenges within their community. They will then identify a need and develop action steps to meet that need. We will move our instruction from broad to personal perspectives of understanding the conditions in the larger world as well as their own. By moving from the global/community perspective into the relational/historical experience and end with their personal perspective, students will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of themselves within time and space.
Students explore whispering, speaking, singing, and calling voices.

Students continue to build a rigorous background in human sensors and their engineering equivalents by learning about electronic touch, light, sound and ultrasonic sensors that measure physical quantities somewhat like eyes, ears and skin. Specifically, they learn about microphones as one example of sound sensors, how sounds differ (intensity, pitch) and the components of sound waves (wavelength, period, frequency, amplitude). Using microphones connected to computers running (free) AudacityÂ® software, student teams experiment with machine-generated sounds and their own voices and observe the resulting sound waves on the screen, helping them to understand that sounds are waves. Students take pre/post quizzes, complete a worksheet and watch two short online videos about "seeing" sound.
In this lesson, you will be discussing the different points of view. The points of view we will be focusing on are 1st person, 2nd person, and 3rd person point of view. You will be able to identify the point of view in the given text or video and provide evidence supporting the point of view. StandardsLA 3.1.6.B Identify and describe elements of literary text (e.g. characters, setting, plot, point of view).LA 3.1.6. I Construct and/or answer literal and inferential questions and support answers with specific evidence from the text or addtional sources.
This lesson is designed to incorporate speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary and grammar practice. Since introducing the passive to ESL students can be difficult, make sure you remain patient while teaching. To teach more effectively, be sure to refer to the given teacher notes.If you want additional lesson plans and support, including teachers’ notes, be sure to register for a free Off2Class account.
Rubric Element 1.7
Students have a voice and choice in the classroom.
Vocal Techniques, the course title used at many institutions, is essentially a voice class for instrumentalists, and is a required course for instrumental music education majors seeking all-level certification. Students take at least one Vocal Techniques course to learn proper singing technique along with basic pedagogy and can include teaching techniques as they apply to adolescent singers. The focus of the course is the development of the individual singing voice. This includes breathing, tone production, articulation, musicality and textual expression and understanding. Students also develop confidence in front of groups, improve their general vocal quality, and learn that a healthy voice serves them well in the general and performance classroom.
This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:
"Communication is key to business. If employees don’t communicate ideas or point out problems, organizations can struggle to improve efficiency and offer innovative products and services. That’s why leaders and organizations often encourage workers to voice their ideas and perspectives. If employees speak up and express their ideas and opinions, the thinking goes, then they’re not remaining silent about other problems or concerns. It turns out, that’s not the case. In an Academy of Management Journal paper, researchers analyzed multiple studies involving thousands of employees to understand the link between voice (how often employees volunteer constructive ideas or issues at work) and silence (the extent to which they intentionally withhold ideas or issues). The conclusion was that the two behaviors were virtually independent. The research found that voice and silence are driven by different psychological factors..."
